WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I’ve been working on swap blocks.

I added this Whoopsie Daisy block to Judy’s group.

Linda asked for a Buckeye Block made in country colors. I had to dig to the bottom of the bins for those fabrics. The yellow flowers are actually a 1950s print.

The next one was completely different and asked for bright colors in a black/grey background using a lot of negative space. I improv pieced this based on a disappearing nine patch.

I got all the blocks sewn together for my Spaghetti Junction quilt and the inner border put on.


I’m not loving it. If I don’t like it all over again when I get the outer border on it is going to be a donation quilt. I have too many quilts here to keep anything I don’t absolutely love. Actually compared to most quilters I probably don’t have many quilts at all. I think I have 5 wall hangings and 3 throw/bed sized quilts. I have one more large quilt ready to be bound and 2 more that are traveling in swaps that are supposed to be for me.

Can I tell a secret? I don’t even use them. My husband has one I made for him that he covers up with but the rest are on the guest bed or the quilt rack. Even the wall hangings are rotated so only one is out at a time.

That’s all I have of all the quilts I’ve made in the last 15 years. All the rest have been gifts or gone to different charities.

How many quilts do you have? What do you do with them?
